When the Sonic Symphony World Tour was initially announced it consisted of dates in London and L.A., which didn’t really emphasize the “World” part of World Tour. However SEGA finally revealed additional dates that span multiple continents (Sorry Australia, Africa, and Antarctica…). Sonic fans can get a taste of the tour in San Diego at the Sonic Speed Café Pop Up tomorrow with 3 short performances, and officially kick off at London’s Barbican Hall.
The show will consist of a variety of pieces spanning the Blue Blur’s 36 year career and will cover musical genres such as EDM and Rock. Tee Lopes, the composer who worked on 2017’s Sonic Mania will be contributing a special musical arrangement for the tour. Other composers for the Sonic franchise, Jun Senoue and Tomoya Ohtani will be attending shows in LA and Brazil. So who knows what special guests will appear throughout the tour.
Tickets for the initial dates have sold out, but tickets for the newly announced dates can be purchased by visiting the tour’s website here.
